"The Destiny Beta version is finally here, and I have gotten the chance to play. So far, I am very encouraged with the game. The world of the game looks amazing." | Explosion.com
I don't want to spoil it for myself. I already know I'm going to like it. I'm not sure how much but I'd rather find out with the Final polished version.
I would of put the throwing knife killing in one hit on that list if that was my list
oh look as usual fanboys disagreeing without giving a valid reason typical.
I'm absolutely loving the game! My biggest complaint is Earth. It needs NPC's. It would be cool to see some displaced refugees selling some gear and unique characters out there in the wild, much like we saw in Borderlands. Beacons giving you missions is a bit surprising. I would think, of course, NPC's will make it in the final game. And why free roam is a separate mode from everything else is a big mistake. I'd love to go to mission to mission (story) without exiting to The Tower or a load screen. Loving the game though. It's addicting!
My only problem is that I only have 1 more week to play it! Lol!
Hopefully the a.i. gets some improvement. But great beta nonetheless.
Yes. They need to be dumber. Damn captains taking cover and shit. jk jk. The A.I. is fine.
Kind of lame to list the number one issue with the game as a problem with servers. Given that one of the goals with a beta test - when they were actual and legitimate test - was to...test? Try to figure what server traffic would be like for the full game in order to manage it better. Also to world out early bugs. Nevermind that its more about advertising now. Rather pointless advertising.
this article feels like a massive troll attempt. I've played about 20 hours of the beta and only been disconnected twice.
Maybe some people are just lucky... I've been disconnect about 10 times while on missions
I just started beta (I was also an Alpha tester before) and it feels very reptitive. Feels like borderlands, which would be cool if I wasn't tired of fps games.
I disagree with the article, its really stable for a beta. It feels alot more complete than many released games, so that's a great thing. My problems lie with how boring I found it. I know its just a Beta and Im not judging a final product, neither am I cancelling my pre order, it just a bit worrying if I was bored to the point of turning it off after only a couple of hours.
Bungie was upfront the entire time that this would be a beta in every sense of the word. There's going to be issues. Bugs and server issues are precisely what they want players to find. They're basically crowdsourcing a little QA in order to deliver a more polished final product. Which makes sense because when you have a game with the scope of Destiny, a standard QA team is woefully inadequate. Testing could take months, if not years. But take a few hundred thousand gamers willing to play the game in am unfinished state and you can stamp out many fires as they occur. I think the main problem is the perception most gamers and even those among the enthusiast press have is that this is supposed to be more or less a demo of the game. This was never intended to be such a thing. This article is an example of someone thinking that it was supposed to be a demo.
Hmmm I've never had any disconnects whilst playing so I guess I'm just lucky. The world does feel a little empty, like there isn't much loot to be found. I like exploring Old Russia as it shows how big the area is and I like how I've come across underground places full of bad guys I can't even seem to dent the armour of. I didn't think the valut was very well signposted and I am really disapointed that the speeder bike thing doesn't have any weapons on it! I mean its a rough and tough world full of things that want to kill you, so I'm sure you'd have guns on your speeder bike (or is that just me).
The only problem I have with Destiny so far is the lack of split screen. It doesn't really bother me personally, but my brothers bought a ps4 together since they're both still in school and don't have disposable incomes. It'd be nice if all three of us could play together at the same time but we're all hooked on the game nonetheless.
The only problem I have are the vehicles... People just whore them and there's not much you can do to kill them... The vehicles need to be nerfed imo
My only problem is the massive MASSIVE loading times. Furthermore two concerns: 1. Levelcap. It only took me 4 hours to reach the current cap of 8... 2. Repetition. Aint a whole lot going on. The mechanics are tons of fun but after 10 hours? On a side Note, make the cutscenes skippable. Watched some 5 times. Different characters and replays phew
I haven't had a single disconnect. I only experience lag, but no disconnects. The loading times could be better.
not judging from this article but from what i see in vids and comments the game isn't that great as i was hoping it to be. how is this the most expansive game of all time?
It's just a Beta, but to be honest, you just walk around shooting dumb A.I. and that's it. Missions don't change all that much, just find guy(s) and kill them. Very repetitive. And the versus multiplayer (especially in Alpha) is BORING. Nothing special. I know people will say it's just a beta, but i'll wait for user reviews before buying. Tired of jumping on the hype train just to be disappointed (Like Thief, Watch Dogs, Ryse, BF4 and other duds)
the most over hyped game this year!
After Titanfall and Watch Dogs saying something like this just makes you look like a troll.
Titanfall is still in the top three every month since release on X1 Live. The game is great. It was hyped, but it delivered. I feel this game is not as great as we were told it was going to be. I haven't played it, but "boring" during a beta is not a good sign. I am going to have to wait for user reviews of the final product to see if this is something I would want. I never got into Halo, so I don't know if this is something I want.
I had more fun with Titanfall than the destiny alpha or beta!
